Large modern hotel, with food better than expected

This large hotel has 2 large restaurants, with very similar if not the same buffet selection for both Breakfast and Evening meals. Large car park and beach nearby. The food was varied, and although the selection for vegetarians limited in comparison to meat/fish eaters it was nevertheless possible to find healthy choices. There were pulses, salads, fruit, as well as small bowls of various nuts too. Great for 1-2 days but the selection may become a bit samey for vegetarians and vegans if staying for 2 weeks. The room was spacious, clean and the décor fine. No coffee/tea facilities though. Paid extra for sea view, but actually it was not what we expected. You could just see the sea, but that was it. There was a large cover over the terrace, so didn't feel like it was open. There were a handful of TV channels, but none of real interest. There was a bathroom area, which was very good. So a perfectly adequate hotel room, and spacious too, fine for sleeping, but not for enjoying during the day for example, as you might a private apartment by the sea. Beach was 250m away down a passageway. The reception area was spacious, as were the communal areas generally. Very well presented, so first impressions good.

The best thing about my stay was...

The hotel's restaurants.

Disapointed

My wife and her sister have just returned from Hesperia Play Dorada Playa Blanca, the hotel and facilities are lovely, the food was totally confusion they had some kind of graded restaurants, this was not pointed out by Alpha Rooms - and to be perfectly honest I have never herd of a 4 star hotel offering this kind of service. Very disappointing. Paid for half board and only used the restaurant twice.

Wonderful Time

This was out second time at this hotel and loved everything about it. Check in was fast and the receptionists were so friendly and helpful. All the staff were friendly and helpful, and nothing was too much trouble for them. I had an issue with food as I am coeliac and the chef and staff were so helpful with my meals. We had no issues with the food at all and there was plenty of variety. The hotel was spotless and such a wonderful location. The animation team were fantastic and always fun and happy to engage with the guests even if we did not join in the games. The entertainment was fantastic, the Brazilian night was amazing and the show the animation team put on was outstanding. The pools were fantastic although they were a bit cold. I used the gym and it was very good and popular as it was never empty. Our room was clean, bright and spacious and everything you could want was to hand. We were standard guests and all inclusive and the quality of everything was fantastic, absolutely nothing to complain about. We will be going back again next year.

Great location

Nice hotel. Staff at restaurant and bar were very friendly and pleasant but staff at check in desk were little sour and at times rude. We dealt with them prob 4 times over week and I was not impressed. Hotel is clean pools are fantastic food is 5 out of 10 but we didn't eat dinner there so cannot comment on that. There are grear restaurants a short walk away so I would recommend half board or b&b. We also requested sea view (paid extra for it) but while u could see the far far ocean our balcony over looked car park and other hotel besides us. The daily cleaning service for the room was exceptional even on day when do not disturb sign on door until early evening. Would visit again but maybe not pay same price. They seem to give preference to all inclusive guests too. Excellent for playa dorada beach though where we spent most of our time.

The best thing about my stay was...

Location is perfect for beach/marina/playablanca restaurants.

Lovely hotel

Lovely hotel with very friendly staff. Two tier system is a pity ( I agree with other reviewers that this makes people feel unnecessarily second rate!). Pools lovely and food varied. Great location too.

The best thing about my stay was...

We love Lanzarote. Great breeze with sunshine makes it an easy place to be. Lovely atmosphere everywhere. Great scenery and fascinating trips around the island.

Very enjoyable

We stayed for two weeks in a standard room on a bed and breakfast basis and couldn't fault the hotel. Our room was very well presented with excellent wardrobe space and very good facilities including a full size fridge. The room was cleaned very thoroughly every day. We didn't have any difficulty with not being on a deluxe package as everything we required to make our stay enjoyable was available to us.

The best thing about my stay was...

The hotel location is excellent within easy access of the marina and the town.

Two tier system

Just back from Hesperia Playa Dora. Beautiful hotel, food, drink and staff all excellent. However there is a two tier system in place where DeLuxe patrons have their own place to relax at the pool. Also they eat in a different restaurant and have a different check in area, with a welcome drink. Also there is no fridge in the rooms for ordinary "all inclusive" patrons. While we would love to return to this hotel in the future, I'm afraid unless this policy changes, it is no no as one doesn't want to feel like a second class citizen on holidays.

The best thing about my stay was...

The location and the food.

Great Holiday !

Just got back following a 10 day stay on a Bed and Breakfast basis and would definitely go back! It's in a great location, with access to the promenade and just a couple of minutes from Playa Dorada beach. The room was nice, the beds were comfortable and we had a large fridge in the room . Everything in the hotel was kept spotlessly clean and all of the staff that we came across were excellent. The heated outdoor pools were a bonus going at this time of year. Breakfast was fine with a fair amount of choice - the fried egg and pancake man was great, as were the attentive staff clearing/setting tables!! Only downside was that the cooked food could have been a touch warmer at times. We didn't try the evening meal or use the bar as there were plenty of great eateries to choose from in the area. The hotel seems to have a two tier system with Standard and Deluxe guests. Deluxe guests get their own reception desk - which is unnecessary as the main desk is huge, with plenty of staff to provide a prompt response to queries. They also get their own sunbathing area. I guess the loungers and day beds add a touch of luxury but the area looked quite cramped. I think the 'sea view' rooms are part of the Deluxe package too. All in all, we had a great time!!

The best thing about my stay was...

Location, cleanliness and heated pools

Very pleasant holiday

We have just got back from a week's All Inclusive holiday at this hotel. We requested a sea view on booking but our room overlooked a car park. It was a comfortable, clean room so we stuck with it, despite hearing cars coming in and out of the car park late at night/ early morning.The hotel is in an ideal location for Playa Blanca. The staff at the hotel are all very helpful and courteous. Nothing was too much trouble. Sadly, we did not think the food, especially at the evening meal, was particularly good. Some of the meat was not cooked properly. The drinks, however, were fantastic and were all really good brands. We thought maybe we should have booked the 'Deluxe' package but one gentleman told us he was Deluxe and he wasn't sure what the difference was. The hotel is very clean and we would recommend it, just not the food in the ordinary restaurant. The outdoor heated pool is lovely and we never had a problem finding a sun bed. The entertainment in the evenings was good. Beatles Tribute band excellent and 'The Divas' and the one lady 'Diva' was fantastic. Not so keen on the Karaoke night.

Jan in the Hisperia Playa Dorado

Hotel lovely. Rooms adequate. Used to be fridge in room and safe included in price but now only those booking exclusive rooms get them. Food usual 4 star buffet, nothing special. Recommend B&B as there are lots of restaurants in walking distance and reasonably priced. Staff helpful and friendly. Entertainment not bad but depends on taste.

The best thing about my stay was...

The swimming pools and location.

Having stayed in in the Dorada before I found the food deteriorated significantly and the entertainment team was the worst I ever experienced.

Hepseria Hotel Playa Dorado

Nice hotel in an excellent position close to the beach, sea front promenade and local shops and services. Lovely quiet room. Very clean. Range of pools and sun areas. The food was poor on some evenings and I would not go on 1/2 board again unless the restaurant improves significantly. I had a mix up with my pick up for a day trip and the staff were not very helpful as I had not booked my trip through the hotel.

The best thing about my stay was...

Quiet room with balcony that got the afternoon sun. The outlook onto the gardens and seafront was very special.
